Houston Car Accident Lawyer Reviews

My nephew Philip was rear ended by a drunk driver while he was waiting at a stoplight. My nephew’s car was totaled and he suffered injuries. I referred him to Rasheed Taylor, who I used to share an office with over on 610 South Loop. I wanted my nephew to be taken care of by the best car accident lawyer in Houston, so I recommended Rasheed Taylor because I had worked with him personally on many occasions and can vouch for his level of expertise. The case took about 2-3 months to work its way through the court system, but in the end Rasheed took care of everything, they got a huge financial award to help with medical bills and replace the totaled car. I will continue to recommend Attorney Rasheed Taylor to friends and family.

Auto Accident Injury? Call a car wreck lawyer

Houston has some of the busiest freeways in the United States. Interstate 10 has some of the worst auto accident statistics in the nation. I-10 and I-45 are major national transport arteries running through the heart of Houston.

Multiple thousands of drivers, including commercial trucks and 18-wheelers, travel these routes on a daily basis. Unfortunately, negligent drivers pose a number of threats while on the road, and we have seen many clients suffer life-threatening injury, and even death, because of the negligent, wreckless, or even criminal actions by certain vehicle operators.

Who is responsible for your injuries?

There are many potential causes of traffic accidents in Houston. You need an experienced lawyer who can order the proper investigations, gather all the evidence, and expertly guide your case through the Texas court system.

  • Is the other driver responsible?

Sometimes a negligent driver is solely responsible for the accident. This can be caused by driving while intoxicated, driving at dangerous speeds, failure to follow standard safety precautions, driving too fast for road conditions, driving while drowsy, improperly securing a payload, texting while driving, and several other dangerous conditions.

We have seen many occasions when a little bit of common sense safety precaution could have avoided the accident all together.

Houston Truck Accident Attorney

With so much commercial and business transportation running through the Houston area, it is not uncommon for our clients to be victims of 18-wheeler accidents.

Unfortunately, these tend to cause serious injuries to the drivers involved (sometimes even death).

  • Is the Trucking Company Responsible for the Accident?

There are times when commercial carriers place unsafe demands on their drivers, thereby exposing their drivers, pedestrians, and other motorists to the risk of injury or death by failing to insist upon adequately safe standards of operation. Additionally, in certain situations, it is incumbent upon the trucking company to properly inspect and maintain the rigs in their fleet. This includes outfitting them with standard safety equipment.

  • Is the Truck Manufacturer Responsible for the Accident?

No matter how safe a driver or a trucking company operates, if the manufacturer has introduced a faulty product to the marketplace, then the risk of an accident increases exponentially. 18-Wheelers are composed of thousands of components that must be manufactured to the highest levels of quality assurance in order to perform adequately. Defective brakes, tires, hydraulic systems, lights and motors are just a few components on a big rig that can cause a catastrophic accident.


No Matter Who Is At Fault…You Need an Aggressive Attorney

The Car Accident Lawyer in Houston, Tx

Here’s the bottom line…most of us, if not all of us, will experience an auto accident in our lifetime. If not us, then a family member, a loved one, or close friend will be injured in an auto accident. Especially in Houston, where basically everyone has to drive everywhere and there is almost zero public transportation.

What Happens When You Get Injured in a Wreck?

There are a few things that happen when you get injured in a car wreck, but the worst-case scenario can play out like this:

  1. You get slammed with a ton of medical bills.
  2. Your injuries prevent you from working, and thus paying for all of these new expenses.
  3. The at-fault driver denies any fault and refuses to help you pay for your new expenses.
  4. The insurance companies completely abandon you (yes, even your insurance company).
  5. The at-fault driver (or corporation) hires an attorney to help them put all the blame on you, and now they’re coming after your bank account and other assets.
  6. All the while, you are in need of on-going medical care and not getting the treatment you need.

Does the above scenario sound far-fetched?

Well, it can happen. And it has happened. This is why you need to consult with an attorney like Rasheed Taylor as soon as you are medically able to do so.

Most of the “car accident attorneys” in Texas actually work with clients who have been physically or mentally injured as a result of the accident.
Here at Taylor Law Firm, we do get a ton of calls from people who didn’t really suffer any personal injury, they just have property damage from the accident, like a wrecked vehicle or building. But, we only work with clients who were personally injured in a car crash.

So, when you get injured in an auto accident, you are going to incur many expenses. And, it is very important to understand that at this time, you may not know whether you are injured, or the full extent of your injuries. Typically, a simple visit to a medical expert reveals more injuries that you initially thought existed. And now you’re looking at a lifetime of ongoing expenses. These are often medical expenses, and sometimes…funeral expenses.

Medical expenses associated with auto accident injuries may also include: 

  • Transportation from the scene of the accident to the hospital in an ambulance.
  • The cost of your hospitalization stay.
  • Extra costs association with: MRIs, XRays, Medical Specialists, and other specific medical equipment.
  • Ongoing outpatient care and associated physical therapy.
  • Pain medication and other needed prescription meds to treat your condition.

So you can see that most people hire a car accident lawyer because they are just swamped with all of these medical expenses, and many times, the insurance company is no help to them (more on those insurance companies later). And, hiring an experienced personal injury lawyer, like Rasheed Taylor, can help offset all of these costs because you are likely to recover more from the insurance companies and at fault driver when you have a top notch expert fighting for you in court.

Every state has laws that limit the amount of time that can pass until you are no longer able to file a lawsuit to recover monetary damages for your injuries.

How Long Do I Have To Sue For An Auto Accident in Texas?

2-Year Texas Statute of Limitations

Under Texas Law, Houston car accident lawsuits must be filed within 2 years from the date of the accident. If you fail to meet this 2 year statute of limitations, you may be barred from filing suit, and the judge will most likely dismiss your claim when you try to file it. So, call our office asap to ensure that you are not missing any legally required deadlines.

This nightmare scenario happens far too often, where otherwise legally valid, and potentially successful claims are completely barred, outright dismissed because of a failure to meet the statute of limitations.

How Much Money Can I Expect To Recover If I Hire a Car Accident Lawyer?

There is a process for determining the value of your case. Frankly, it is far too complicated to describe on this one webpage. Texas has an insane amount of auto accidents every year. A smaller percentage of those are considered serious injury accidents and leave their victims with life-altering injuries. If you have a good case, it is possible that you can recover a surprisingly decent sum of money, enough to make you legally “whole,” for your injuries. And possibly enough to help you get back to some sense of normalcy. We help clients in this situation all of the time, and our online reviews are packed full of people just like you, who have recovered a substantial financial award from the Texas Justice System for their injuries.
